There's nothing like a discrepant event demonstration to bring an abstract concept to life. Our Atmospheric Mat offers a dramatic introduction to the concept of air pressure. Invite your students to pick up the mat. No matter how hard they pull on its sturdy metal hook, this mat will not budge! Is it some kind of suction trick? Nope! It's just air pressure. The room's air pressure is so much greater than the pressure under the mat that - in effect - the air itself is holding the mat in place. Works on almost any smooth surface. Measures 26.6 cm x 26.6 cm (10.5 x 10.5 inches).
